Kill/Shot by Rachel Washington
A classics professor is forced to confront her own motivations after she kills a student -- a shooter who has already killed four other students -- in self-defense.  Does that make her a hero or a criminal?  Rachel Washington is a 3rd year MFA playwright from California.

The Chairs by Eugène Ionesco (as translated by Rob Melrose)
Trapped in a repetitive existence, an elderly couple strives to find the meaning of life.  Reliving moments of regret, they ultimately pursue the only retreat they know.  This absurdist piece resonates with the themes of responsibility and the need to lead a meaningful life.
